I have a cat who has given me ringworm. I am severely disabled

Customer Question

I have a cat who has given me ringworm. I am severely disabled lady who is totally incapable of doing my own housework. I have had so many conflicting view some more promising than others. I cannot get cleaners, carers etc to do anything for me so my question is with a dyson some antifungal cream and a very efficient dyson should I be able to crack this problem on my own. I have one positivie ringworm and a lot of red patches which could be rubber gloves, hence my next question - I had a glove full of blood as I am an old lady with very fine fragile skin. I read that ringworm will not heal if covered. Is this true?
